Upcycle Your Socks with a New DO!

Hello my fashion-forward femme fatales! You gotta get your eco chic on (Earth Day is approaching!!) and the best way to do so is to upcycle – aka reuse something you already own. My personal favorite is the sock bun.

Hair brands are selling bun makers and hair donuts, but a simple sock does the job. Cut off the toes, roll into a donut (almost like you would when putting on stockings) and then it looks like a donut. Place on top of ponytail. Waterfall hair to cover. Use a hair tie to secure then bobby pin ends and you’ve got the perfect big bun. For a picture tutorial click here!!


Celebs obsessed with the big bun include some of my faves: Lauren Conrad, Kim Kardashian, and J.Lo.
